On December 9th, Toronto’s indie darling DIANA held a Friday evening synth-pop show at Ottawa’s perogie and pinball hot-spot House of Targ. Recently releasing Familiar Touch, the second album following 2013’s acclaimed Perpetual Surrender, their tracks grabbed the crowd by the ear and got everyone dancing. From sweet backing harmonies to striking sax solos, it all meshed to make a memorable night. Though this show appeared to be their last for 2016, we’re hoping 2017 will draw them back out on the road.
Earlier in the evening, a couple of artists from Montreal took to the stage. Electro-experimental Cabaal (Ben Globerman) opened the night on a perfect note, followed by Calia Thompson-Hannant, also known as Mozart’s Sister. The electropop artists’ forthcoming album Field of Love is expected in February 2017 and a few sporadic shows surrounding its launch are on tap for her in the new year.
Each were so enjoyable, the conclusion of their respective sets seemed to arrive too early. Here’s hoping all three return to O-town soon!
